Do you find yourself wondering about the biographical information of famous and not so famous people? There is a fantastic database which will help you answer those questions. The Biography Resource Center has a number of ways to search for biographies. I limited my search to the occupation librarian and came up with a host of librarians from which to choose. This database is great for those school biography reports as well. Try it out.
